Smiling, frowning, squinting and even chewing—any facial movement—can eventually lead to one of the most common signs of aging: wrinkles.
One of the quickest and safest remedies to remove wrinkles is an injection of Botox. Botox injections block muscular nerve signals, which then weakens the muscle so that it can’t contract and diminishes your unwanted facial wrinkles.
The number of Botox injections you need will depend on multiple factors, including your facial features and the extent of your wrinkles. Crow’s feet, for example, usually require two to three injections. Furrows above your brow could take five or more.
Botox won’t fix all types of skin problems. For example, while it can diminish under-eye wrinkles, it can’t repair the damage caused by the sun. Your skin thickness, type, and the degree of wrinkling all play a role in determining the effectiveness of Botox.
